Happy Cinco de Mayo!

We celebrated by learning about the holiday and why it is important to Mexican-Americans.  I read several books about Cinco de Mayo, we did several Spanish word activities, and made our own Cinco de Mayo books.  We also used Spanish color words to make some beautiful posters and danced the Macarena and the Mexican Hat Dance!  Finally, we made colorful paper sombreros to wear.  Our reading specialist always allows me to borrow her book, The Big, Bushy Mustache, and we make mustaches to wear.  The kids think this is hilarious!  I had them put their mustaches on with their sombreros in order to "disguise" them a little more for our blog!  Ole'!
